Homemade Croutons ( adapted by me

Ok so this has been a CRAAAAAAZY week!!! I have had to do A LOT of quick and easy meals but I don't feel right without making SOMETHING! So I was trying to figure out what to make last night and looking in my fridge I seen....lettuce, some shredded chicken, some hard broiled eggs, cheese, etc. etc. etc. so yes I made another salad. I have been eager to try to make my own croutons so this would work out great right!?!?

My oldest son and I made these together and they were so quick and easy and it was fun to do this with him!!

These turned out soooo good and I will definitely be making these all the time now!!!! Yada and her kids were here last night and her little 1 1/2 year old little girl would not stay out of them she loved them lol!!!!

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 2 clove garlic, minced

  • 3 (3/4 inch thick) slices French bread, cut into cubes ( I used 1/3 a loaf of  french bread but I hear you can use bread bread too but I haven't tried it)

  • Now are you ready for this its so easy ...
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    In a large saute pan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add bread cubes, and toss to coat. Spread on a baking sheet.
    Bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp and dry. Check frequently to prevent burning. Cool then store in a plastic baggie.

    I made this recipe 3 times and just did the whole loaf of french bread. I love to munch on croutons for a snack, I know its not very healthy but you know what I say you cant trust a skinny cook!!
